Inspired By: Cold Front

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

The recent polar freeze that swept through a huge part of the country inspired us to keep things bundled up despite our daydreams about spring's arrival. Today’s street style inspiration is a great example of chic layering for cold days. Break up all those dark solids

with a pop of leopard print and you’re ready to brave the rest of winter!

Check out our take on this ultra-cool and cozy look:

Putting Together an Outfit from the Bottom Up: Vintage-Look Boots Start a Modern Glam Look

Do you love the vintage look, but want to add a modern touch? Like something old, something new (without the borrowed or blue)? Then here's a great look for you!

Start with these wonderful black suede ankle boots called "Ashlyn" from Elizabeth and James. The wrapped heel is 4 1/4 inches high, with a half inch platform. The details are positively yummy: a row of buttons up each side of the center piece, a peekaboo toe, and a back strap. The buttons may look retro, but these aren't your grandmother's boots! And they do have a soft lining and a lightly cushioned footbed, so you'll still be able to dance all night.

Top them with a great pair of black leggings that go down to the ankle. Stick with these basic black, unadorned leggings, because you want the attention to go to your feet and those delightful boots. Yes, there are plenty of great-looking leggings; a pair with shirring comes to mind, but really, with Ashlyn on your feet, you don't need to decorate your legs!

Moving on up, remember that leggings are not pants (do I need to repeat that?) Even for babies, leggings aren't pants, so don't top them with a shirt. Instead, choose an adorable dress like the Breathless Mini Dress from Quiksilver. Made in a lambswool/cotton blend, this black long-sleeved mini has a deep cowl neck and a curve-hugging cut. For a little extra detail there are metal studs down the back of the dress. All eyes will be on you when you strut into the room in this dress!

With all that black, remember to add a pop of color. Whether it's a bright leather jacket or bag, or chunky jewelry in metal, semi-precious stones like turquoise, cinnabar, or even lamp work glass, you need something to break up the black. It's your style, so you choose!

What to Wear With Leggings

Leggings are back on the fashion scene and in women's closets everywhere. This is both a good and a bad thing. Worn well, leggings can be fashionable, comfortable and even practical. Worn badly, and they're a quick trip to a fashion wreck. The trick to wearing leggings is all in what you wear with leggings, so pair them with the right tops and dresses to look good, whatever your size and age.

Tunics and Tops
Leggings can be worn as pants with long shirts, sweaters or tunic length tops. There is a key word here: long. If you opt to wear a shirt with leggings, be sure that it comes to mid-thigh for a flattering look. Flowing tunics work well, but long tees topped with a boyfriend style jacket or cardigan are a cute casual option. Keep in mind that leggings with a top is a rather young look, and often quite a relaxed one. Dress up your basic black leggings with a sparkly tunic for a playful evening option.

Dresses and Skirts
Leggings work very well under dresses for girls and women of any age. They offer warmth, comfort and modesty, as well as style. Experiment with wearing leggings with various skirts and dresses to make the most of this trend in a way that works with your personal style and body. Match the color of your leggings to your dress for a subtle way to wear leggings or contrast the color for a whimsical look. Wear a miniskirt or dress with leggings to make it a bit more age appropriate or comfortable. Choose ankle length leggings with skirts or dresses to achieve a long and lean look.

Shoes and Boots
Put the heels away when you're wearing leggings to avoid looking oh-so-1985. Pair leggings with flat boots, ballet flats, or cute pointed flats. Go casual with a classic flat tennis shoe or canvas skimmer.  Flats are available in a variety of styles and colors, ranging from sparkly evening options to casual everyday shoes and all of these styles can work with your leggings. Choose a shoe with a low vamp to visually extend the leg. If you absolutely must wear a heel, opt for a simple style in a color that matches the leggings and skip the stilettos.
